Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Wetlands Birthday

Whipped this card up really quickly before I left for work this morning. I love the Wetlands stamp set and needed a masculine birthday card. Really like the way the background paper turned out. I inked one side of the embossing folder and then inserted very vanilla paper and ran it through the Big Shot. Wanted a card that was simple and quick yet elegant, therefore, I used the Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch for the week.

Stamp: Wetlands
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso
Accessories: Soft Suede Polka Dotted Ribbon, Starburst Framelit Dies,  Wood Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Circles Diecuts, Small oval punch, Dimensional.

Thanks for looking and leaving any comments. They are much appreciated.
